Luxurious Palm Beach Wedding Venues
By Kara Franker
Palm Beach is a Florida wedding destination of choice for discerning brides and grooms searching for the ultimate in romantic elegance. From oceanfront ceremonies, lavish ballrooms, intimate gardens, specialty spa packages and impeccable service, these Palm Beach wedding venues at luxury resorts will cater to your every desire.
Expert wedding specialists are on hand to assist with all aspects of planning and preparation, and delicious dining options are available courtesy of each of the hotels’ acclaimed chefs.
THE BREAKERS PALM BEACH
With the look of a grand European palace on the ocean, The Breakers serves as a stunning physical backdrop for the occasion, but also operates with the feel of an inn. The resort is under single family ownership, descendants of founder Henry Flagler, and guests feel that extra special warmth and personalization from the staff. It's one of the most iconic Palm Beach wedding venues avaiable.
The ballrooms are modeled after the historic 14th and 16th century palazzos of Italy and a reception for 50 or 500 is as delectable as a gourmet dinner for two.
For Palm Beach destination weddings that typically take place over two or more days, the resort offers multiple venues for rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, receptions and post-wedding brunches. Enjoy sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean.
